ASTANA, October 31 (Itar-Tass) —— Kazakhstan is interested in long-term supplies of nuclear fuel in Vietnam and in NPP construction projects in that country, the press service of Kazakhstani President Nursultan Nazarbayev said on Monday.
The Kazakhstani president is now on his first official visit in Hanoi. Earlier in the day, Nazarbayev had talks with Vietnamese president Truong Tan Sang.
“The dynamic development of our economies creates favourable conditions for the implementation of bilateral cooperation’s potential,” Nazarbayev said.
“Kazakhstan is ready to work jointly with Vietnamese partners in the upgrading of the industrial sphere and the oil and gas sector,” the press service quoted the president as saying during the meeting.
“Touching upon the top-priority areas of Kazakhstani-Vietnamese interaction, the two sides pointed to transport, communications, ship building, processing industry, trade, small- and medium-sized business, and agriculture,” the press service said.
While pointing to the fact that “all appropriate conditions have been created for the enhancement of Kazakhstani-Vietnamese relations,” Nazarbayev invited Vietnam’s business community to take part in the program aimed at the industrialisation of Kazakhstan.
The Vietnamese president, in turn, stated that trade, economic and investment cooperation of the two countries develops intensively, the press service said. Besides, he is confident that the Customs Union of Kazakhstan, Russia and Belarus “surely, will promote enhancement of bilateral contacts.” Sang considers the setting up of the Kazakhstani-Vietnamese Business Council as an important step towards this.
“In all, the results of the talks showed reciprocal intention of the two countries to expand political, trade, economic, cultural and humanitarian cooperation,” the presidential press service said.
